Safety at Sacher
More Details



Amazing art and Austria’s most famous cake, united for a good cause? That was Elisabeth Gürtler’s vision in 2009 when she launched the Sacher Artists’ Collection, and the idea was a recipe for success from the start. Every year since, a renowned artist has transformed the iconic wooden box in which the Original Sacher-Torte is packaged into a unique work of art. All proceeds from this limited edition are donated to specially selected charity projects.

Sacher Artists' Collection 2019 by Friedrich von Amerling

This year’s Sacher Artists’ Collection comes not from a contemporary artist, but from one of the most important representatives of the Austrian Biedermeier period, Friedrich von Amerling. Von Amerling’s 1836 “Portrait of Princess Marie Franziska von

Liechtenstein (1834–1909) at the Age of Two” is among the best known Austrian Biedermeier paintings. The work is part of the Liechtenstein Princely Collections, which is one of the world’s largest and most significant private collections and includes works spanning five centuries.
